Quick question as on the org refresh, it says in the Instance Refresh Maintenance article that OrgId will not be impacted - great. Is it safe to assume this holds true for all data/metadata record Ids as well (Record Type Ids, Contact Ids, etc)? More

We received a notice today about an instance refresh and I had a question regarding customers logging cases via the portal. In the webinar someone asked about email to case and the answer was that those cases would be queued. We don't use email to case but rather ask our customers to log cases via our Community portal. So will our customers have access to do this during the 4 hour maintenance window? It sounds like they won't. What kind of error will they get if they try? More

Enhancing API security and mitigating the risk of an attack on the encryption of in-transit, we periodically rotate our endpoint TLS/SSL certificates. What and When?

For security reasons I would like to compile a list of all the IP addresses from which users have successfully logged in during the last 6 months. This is proving to be very frustrating. The export feature within Salesforce doesn't appear to work (never completes), and exporting the data via the DataLoader results in a file containing 7.6 million rows which is difficult to manipulate subsequently. (You can't even filter on the Status field to limit the query!). I know that the total number of IP addresses will not exceed 95 because that's the number of addresses that we have whitelisted. So I'm just looking for a small set of successful login IPs. Why are things like this so difficult to obtain on this platform? More
